I would like to find out who was John McAfee's father also. I recently found out by DNA match that John McAfee and Alvira Reid were my ancestors. We spelled name as McElwee. Don't know when name was changed..My gggrandfather's name was Absalom McElwee/McAfee.born abt 1790 in Va..Could his name have been John also and used a middle name? First born sons for several generations were named John Fay McElwee. Please help solve this mystery.
